Data Republic, Australia’s leading data sharing platform, announced the opening of a new office in Singapore as part of the organisation’s expansion into the Asia-Pacific region.
Joining the Australian Government’s Singapore Landing Pad program, Data Republic’s launch in Singapore follows continued interest from major regional players in Data Republic’s unique data sharing technology platform and governance framework.
Backed by major Australian organisations such as; Qantas Loyalty, Westpac Reinventure, NAB Ventures and ANZ, as well as Singaporean-based Qualgro Venture Capital, Data Republic’s technology revolutionises data sharing between organisations. It makes it simpler and more secure for organisations to govern dataset access, licensing terms and protect privacy when collaborating with data.
The move will give businesses and governments operating in Singapore the ability to license Data Republic’s Senate Platform to securely govern data sharing programs, as well as join Data Republic’s fast-growing data exchange ecosystem which includes over 500 organisations from major brands and service providers, to governments, universities and not-for-profits.
On the expansion, Data Republic Co-Founder and CEO Paul McCarney said, “Singapore is famous for its commitment for innovation – so we’re very excited to launch Singapore’s own Data Republic.
“We recognise that maintaining this balance between data liquidity and privacy is a global challenge. Given our growth and the demands of our global clients, expanding to Singapore makes sense.
“We’re looking forward to supporting the Singaporean state’s ambition to be a world leader in the emerging global data economy.”
Data Republic is finalising the appointment of a Country Manager and are in late stage discussions with launch clients.
